California Marijuana Growers Have To Respect The Environment Or Get Heavily Fined

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, June, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

fined marijuana fineGrowing marijuana can be very harmful for the environment unless proper precautionary steps are taken. A lot of outdoor marijuana growers think that if they buy a piece of land, that they can do whatever they want. That is not the case, as some people in California are learning the hard way. Outdoor marijuana growers need to be good stewards of not only the land that they are growing on, but also to the ground water and waterways that go beyond their property’s borders.

A lot of growers have a ‘get mine, and the hell with yours’ mentality. They are in it for the profit, and nothing else. That’s not to say that all growers are that way, because that’s certainly not the case. But there are more than a few bad apples out there that follow practices that make it harder for the rest of us. California recently issued a massive fine to some growers that didn’t follow environmental rules. Per Courthouse News:

A California board that protects water from degradation by marijuana farms has issued its first fine: $297,400 against a landowner and a contractor in Shasta County. It’s the first penalty issued by the multi-agency Cannabis Pilot Project, staffed by state and regional water boards and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board announced the fine Friday. The Cannabis Pilot project was formed specifically to address adverse environmental impacts caused by marijuana cultivation in California

Map: The price of marijuana in every state

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

It’s the law of supply and demand in action: When a commodity is illegal, it tends to become scarcer and its price rises on the black market. Make it legal again, and its price will fall.

That’s been the case for marijuana, as this map by Frank Bi of Forbes shows. Marijuana is now a lot cheaper in the states that have legalized it than in the states that have not.

The map shows the average price of an ounce of high-quality marijuana in each state. The data is crowd-sourced via PriceofWeed.com, a website where people anonymously submit the cost of weed in their area.

Nationally, the average price of an ounce of weed is $324. But in four states that have legalized or decriminalized pot – Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Alaska -- the price of an ounce of weed has fallen below $300. Oregon is the cheapest, where an ounce of high-quality marijuana goes for only $204, almost half the cost in North Dakota, the most expensive state.

Growing Marijuana At A Cellular Level

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, May, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

growing marijuana cellular levelThere are millions of varying kinds of cells that make up a cannabis plant.

The different cell types vary in their function, and they all work together as a sort of cell team. Cells for the leaves, roots, vascular system are just a few examples of the different cell functions and types.

Everything you do with your plant has an effect on the cellular plane as well. Outside factors (i.e. changes in sunlight or temperature) also come into play at the cellular level, affecting the plant’s functions. Consequently, it is very important to have an understanding of cell responses, so you can alter the conditions for your plant to make sure it has a perfect and healthy response.

To better understand the goings-on of cell processes, we will proceed with this article via an analogy. Instead of using the tricky cell part names, we will look at it as the different parts within a power plant and a factory.

Here’s how it works: The factory building, the receival of raw materials, the checking of these materials, and then the production of a finished result. A power plant provides the energy for the factory’s production, plus there is communication between that factory and the other factories. All of this is controlled and kept working in harmony by the head office.

These types of facilities and their processes can be compared to the cell processes themselves, and will help you learn and understand what exactly is going on at the cellular level of your plants.  Download my free marijuana grow bible and grow like a pro!

Factory building

The factory walls are the equivalent of the cell’s walls, which are kept firm because they are mostly made up of cellulose. When you walk up to the factory’s walls, the security guard from the receiving department greets you.

Organizational Participation Sought For The UNGASS 2016 Global Civil Society Survey

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, May, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

washington state marijuana survey

The Harm Reduction Coalition invites organizations to fill out theUNGASS 2016 (UN General Assembly Special Session on Drugs) Global Civil Society Survey, designed to provide an initial assessment on community work in the field of drugs, as well as to measure the awareness and level of knowledge and interest in participating actively in the UNGASS 2016 initiative at the regional and global levels. The results will provide an overview of the work of community-based organizations active in the drug field, areas of expertise, key priorities and concerns to be addressed, as well as best practices.

It’s important to get a good set of responses from organizations in the US, especially harm reduction and reform groups, as we too infrequently are involved in UN matters. Harm Reduction Coalition has been heavily involved in the formation of the Civil Society Task Force (CSTF) and the New York NGO Committee on Drugs (NYNGOC).

Click here to complete the survey. It should take no longer than 30 minutes. Please submit only one response per organization, and please note that the survey is only for organizations. Completion of the survey will provide the CSTF with invaluable information to that is essential for UNGASS preparation and beyond, so please forward widely.

Survey responses are due by July 31st. Input is confidential and any identifying information is solely for the CSTF’s record keeping. (HRC notes that if you get stuck on question 6, check NYNGOC.)
